Famous quotes containing the words north, army and/or group:

    The North American system only wants to consider the positive aspects of reality. Men and women are subjected from childhood to an inexorable process of adaptation; certain principles, contained in brief formulas are endlessly repeated by the press, the radio, the churches, and the schools, and by those kindly, sinister beings, the North American mothers and wives. A person imprisoned by these schemes is like a plant in a flowerpot too small for it: he cannot grow or mature.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    Like an army defeated
    The snow hath retreated,
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    Jury—A group of twelve men who, having lied to the judge about their hearing, health, and business engagements, have failed to fool him.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
